An Orlando-based developer announced Thursday it has a contract to buy the site of General Motor’s former Doraville manufacturing plant, with plans to build a vast mixed-use project.

New Broad Street Companies of Orlando said the company has been in discussions with GM for more than 18 months.
The plant closed in September 2008. At least four developers have bid to buy the 165-acre lot at I-285 and Buford Highway and build some kind of mixed-use development there.

not sure...Town Brook will be a bit more smaller town...SOB much more urban and upscale...Aerotropolis more business oriented...and this...hopefully a better version of atlantic station...

I think it could be nice...not sure they are apples to apples though.

This is the best possible outcome for the old G.M. plant.

This company also deleveloped Baldwin Park in Orlando, where the old Naval Training Center used to be.

It turned out very nice, and I would compare it to a smaller version of Atlantic Station, with a few small differences.

it will probably be like atlantic station but with a few differences. the city of doraville is not going to mandate section 8 apartments like the city of atlanta did with AS. also, i think the buildings wont look as cheaply built as they do in AS. the city of doraville wants this to be an upscale development, with no international themes or stores, and no cheap apartments. they know that with this development comes thier only chance to remake doraville into an intown hotspot, and im glad they held out against the stadium idea.
